Atalanta-AS Roma match preview

AS Roma has been impressive this season and currently occupies fourth place in the Serie A standings. In their previous match, they achieved a convincing 4-1 win against Feyenoord and will seek to repeat that performance this week.

On the other hand, Atalanta is currently in seventh place in the league table and has not had the best season so far. They drew 1-1 with Fiorentina last week and will need to raise their game in this upcoming fixture.

Despite only winning three of their last 16 league encounters with Atalanta, Roma secured a 4-1 victory in their most recent visit to Bergamo, with Tammy Abraham scoring both the opening and closing goals.

Atalanta possible starting lineup:

Under the guidance of Jose Mourinho, AS Roma has made significant strides this season and is determined to demonstrate their abilities in this match. Paulo Dybala has been in excellent form in recent weeks and will be eager to make an impact.

Atalanta has experienced difficulties over the past month and requires a boost to their confidence. AS Roma is currently the stronger team and is expected to emerge victorious in this fixture.

In 2023, Roma has achieved a remarkable feat of securing nine wins without conceding a goal. This accomplishment has only been matched by their city rivals Lazio and the likely champions, Napoli. It is clear that Mourinho’s team is proficient in delivering results.

Prediction: Atalanta 1–3 Roma
